Regent has contracts with certain air carriers for specific flights along this route.
Approximately 270 days prior to departure, the Regent Air Service Department will have a list available of those specific flights and can make them available to the passenger for review.
The passenger can review the flights and then chose which one(s) seem the most desirable. The passenger or TA can request an early booking (for a fee) and secure the specific flight(s) desired. By booking the flight early the passenger is assured (or almost) of getting on the requested contracted flight.
Is this understand on my part correct? Also wondering, Regent uses the term "early booking" and "flight deviation request". What is the difference between the two and difference in fee charged?
Thanks so much for your help.
